Woody Allen claims Timothée Chalamet denounced him to increase Oscar chances



Woody Allen writes in his new memoir about Timothée Chalamet :
“All the three leads in ‘Rainy Day’ were excellent and a pleasure to work with. Timothée afterward publicly stated he regretted working with me and was giving the money to charity, but he swore to my sister he needed to do that as he was up for an Oscar for ‘Call Me by Your Name,’ and he and his agent felt he had a better chance of winning if he denounced me, so he did. Anyhow, I didn’t regret working with him and I’m not giving any of my money back.”

About other actors who denounced him, Allen writes in the book :
“The fact these actors and actresses never looked into the details of the case (they couldn’t have and come to their conclusion with such certainty) did not stop them from speaking out publicly with dogged conviction. Some said it was now their policy to always believe the woman. I would hope most thinking people reject such simple-mindedness.”

About the people who have spoken out in his defense :
“More people should have said, I really don’t know all the facts so I have to withhold my judgment. God forbid anyone should say, ‘This accusation has been thoroughly investigated and found to be untrue,' but thanks to all, because it was very nice of them to speak out, and I assure them it’s not something they will ever be embarrassed having done.”
